Thanks guys! Sadly had to remove it and put the stock one back as the engine light keeps coming on at 4000rpm and goes into limp mode... anyone have any ideas why? Will play around with it more on the weekend

Hi guys sadly this intake was scrapped.. wont be able to do this without a remap and im still waiting for MOTRONIX on that so ive actually just made a bracket that screws onto the exixting airbox and has a fitting for a cone filter. still sounds as loud :D and i think it kind of revs up quicker but dont know if thats just me wanting it to make a difference. will post pics and vids when i get a chance
